Geography is the science of space and place. Geographers ask where things are located, why they are there, how places differ, how we go about our daily lives and how people interact with their environment. To put it simply, geographers study the world in which we live.
The field of geography bridges the natural sciences (physical geography) and social sciences (human geography). Geographers work in areas like environmental management, education, disaster response, city and county planning, community development, and more. Geography is an interdisciplinary field that offers diverse career opportunities. Your degree in geography is a stepping-stone to graduate studies or professional degrees in geography, architecture, law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
